The logic being that if you're already paying $2,300 for something, 
what does $2,500 matter?  Well, it's still $200.  You can do a lot for 
$200.  Buy film, for example.  Take a trip.  Get a professionally 
framed enlargement of your favorite photograph.  Donate to a charity.  
Take three of your friends to a restaurant for a good meal.  Buy a 
dozen roses, dinner and drinks, and make someone's day.

Besides, with reasoning like that, then why can't the $2,300 camera 
cost $2,100?  I mean, it's just a few buck here or there...
